Differential Breather Tube

Poking around underneath my 2000 WJ 4.7 today, I found a gash in the front differential breather tube. The gash is located next to the CV joint on the on the drive shaft. Any easy ways to fix this or am I going to have to get a new tube? Thanks.

Obligatory pics.

Cut the hole out of it and splice it together with a fitting with barbs on each end
One of these doohickeys:

Or, just spend 30 cents and buy a length of new hose. Perfect time to extend it and get a snorkel

Actually one purpose of a snorkel is to raise the air intake higher to avoid excessive dust intake.

Guess I'll need a world record snorkel then. Here's an aerial pic of a dust storm that blew thru here last week causing a 26 car pile up on I-80. Story
